Shikaki’s paper examines the evolution of the Palestinian National Movement, concentrating particularly on seminal historical events such as the 1967 and 1973 Wars, the demise of the Soviet Union, the Second Gulf War, the Oslo Accord, and their political impact on the Palestinian diaspora. Indeed, Shikaki sheds light on the stark political realities currently facing the Palestinian people. Given the circumstances of the past thirty years and the Palestinian search for political, moral and material support, Shikaki questions the direction in which the Palestinians will eventually be pulled, perhaps towards Israel, east to Jordan, or to the wider Arab world?
